    Over or under 1 year before we see "Federal Agent's iPhone's Compromised" article? I'll take the over but just slightly...

    Defining Moment

    I honestly don't understand why everybody's getting so uptight about this development, it's great news! Think about it, BlackBerry has a proven track record for providing robust security for Government and private corporations, what better way to solidify that reputation than to have one of the competitors put their system to the test. Apple has no such track record, they have yet to make their mark as a secure mobile platform. If they pass kudos to them, if they fail, the s*** hits the fan. This is a defining moment in the evolution of mobile security as it relates to Government and private corporate entities.

    OK, on one side you have to understand government accountants trying to keep their jobs by initiating cost saving budgets. And you have to understand government decision makers have no concept of reality when giving the ok on these cost saving budgets, they just seek approval from their boss, the governor.
    Now, you have to understand Apple going after such a large contract. Apple, wining and dining, showing that they can supply all their mobile needs at a lower price because, they assemble their devices in 3rd world countries that have never had fair labor laws.
    So, if you look at the money side of this, it makes sense.

    HOWEVER, the law suits that will hit the governments when personal information is hacked into will show them just how bone-headed this decision was because they will be looking at the cost savings of switching to hack-able devices compared to how much they are paying out to the citizens that had their identity hacked.
    This is when you will see the guy who sweeps the floors at the governmental buildings telling them that they never should have switched, while he conducts his personal finances on his non-hackable Blackberry device, chuckling to himself.
